“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Eat downstairs for the steak house and a little more formal dining. We had mussels which were fantastic. For the main course we had petite filets...fantastic, melted in your mouth. Upstairs is more bar like and very noisy. Great meal.

“The best place in northern Minnesota”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Love this place. Been going to this place for 30 years since I was born. Has three restaurants in one. Great north woods feeling kind of place. Great food and service. Just a one of a kind place. It is worth your time and money to have a meal at this place.

“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Housed in a really nice log building with wood finish inside, the staff is very friendly, the prices are good and the food is very good - nothing to dislike. Very good value for the money.

“Recommend the San Antonio burger!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

This family of Texans got a kick out of seeing a San Antonio burger on the menu and it lived up to our hopes! Our only complaint is that they could use some coaching on how to make iced tea. One glass was strong enough to fill a pitcher when diluted with ice water. Friendly and affordable; a very enjoyable meal! Some of the best buffalo wings we've had anywhere!
